SANDMAN MAKES A COMEBACK
REMEMBER the Holden Sandman?
It's been 40 years since the original in 1974. Now it's back, with a modern twist and nose for performance.
The 2015 Sandman Special Edition is derived from the VF Commodore SV6 and the sporty SS-V, and is available as a ute and /or Sportwagon.
While the Sandman is much more advanced than its pre- decessor, Holden says it still retains the recognisable surf livery and the groovy, orange shagpile floor rug as an additional accessory.
"Holden knows Australians better than any other company and the Sandman is a perfect reflection of the Aussie culture and attitude," spokesman Sean Poppitt said.
"I'm sure it will spark great memories and help create new memories for others. “Let the good times roll again." The Sandman was originally launched on the HQ Holden in 1974 as a panel van and ute in a bid to increase Holden's presence in the recreational market. Production stopped in 1977. The new Sandman goes on sale in June.
